Mayela has used remnants of fabric from Mara Hoffman's previous collections to create woven pieces for the exhibition. In her practice clothing is cut and then woven into a tapestry to illustrate how fragments ultimately comprise a whole. Through tactile memory and collective nostalgia, Cassandra poses a poignant question — how is identity shaped by the things we carry and physical places we occupy.
